International Arts Carnival

One of the biggest cultural events in Hong Kong’s calendar is the annual International Arts Carnival, which normally attracts world-class performing arts groups from across the globe. Due to the continuing restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, international participation this year will be much curtailed.

The 2022 Carnival runs from July 8 until August 14, with a mixture of online events and in-person stage shows.

The Carnival is designed specifically with families in mind, with the aim of exposing children to the world of the arts, so there is a variety of family-friendly programming.

What can I see and do?

In previous years, the lineup has included theatre, dance, acrobatics, black light puppeteering, opera for babies, and musicals. There are also international film screenings, and other interactive experiences.
While most of the shows are in English, accompanied by Cantonese subtitles, certain shows are only in Cantonese, so be sure to check the details of each performance prior to buying tickets.

The shows take place in various locations, such as the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Space Museum, the Yuen Long Theatre, and Sha Tin Town Hall, to name a few.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
